    More fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.

    Chevelle is slower than my friends cobra (maybe even my V6 before it blew a trans). But damn, when the secondaries kick in you forget all about that.

    I think the dude wearing driving gloves validates the performance of 210hp. Lol. Classic reviews are great!

    Oh man, I just saw one of those very SS's on the way to work this morning. Those old SS's are my favorite Camaro by far for some reason

    They're my favorite year too. Give me an SLP SS in black with the center mount exhaust and I'd be happy.

    I knew a couple of guys that had them back in the day that had the spray on them. They hurt a lot of feelings.

    They do! Just not here in the states In Aussie land, it's a single turbo I6 in the FPV Falcons and Utes.

    The Barra engine is out of production too. I've considered importing one of those.

    This issue and the one before it with the comparison of the possible upcoming cobra for 2003 the supercharged 4.6 and the NA 5.4 is what caused me to go $35k in the hole buying a terminator in late 2002 when they were first available. Mine was the first one around where I live and I was laying the smackdown on many candy asses back then with a pullied cobra :). Ahhhhh those were the days!

    Hard to believe that a BPU Terminator used to dominate basically everything on the street.

    You're not kidding. Now my bolt on Screw runs 12s and is SLOW. Even stock performance cars are ridiculous now.

    that old straight six is one of the best truck motors ever made. So smooth and torquey.

    I worked at UPS in the late 90s going through college and washed the package cars at night after our local sort.... All of the gas turcks had that ford l6... the diesels had a cummins or a powerstroke (PS was gutless back then compared to the cummins).

    the 4.9 in those gas package cars kicked ass... they were all manual trans trucks and we would raw hide the living hell out of them... sliding through corners and burning tires all through granny gear into 1st LOL.

    good times.

    Ha, I remembered the first mainstream one on the web was that black one with the non chromed rims. I can't remember his screen name but his races were posted everywhere and was the first Cobra to outrun some many things back then. He was up north somewhere.

    That was @Blades. It was a time before YouTube when we were searching for places to upload/host our Quicktime videos.

    Ahhhh, that is the one indeed.

    That is true now that I think about it, there wasn't YouTube up and running at the time. I just remember having to download different formats of video players to view different vids people posted. It was a pain.
